I grew up in a small town of northwestern Connecticut with the rolling hills, woods and meadows of the Appalachian foothills. With two horses at home, we were one of the many small equestrian farms in an area rich in equestrian activities. I found western NC and the SC upstate during a business trip in the early 1990’s. I knew this would be my future home and I moved here in 1995. My wife Laura is a lifelong resident of this area and we have two lovely daughters and six wonderful grandchildren. My parents moved here to a small horse farm bring their horses, dogs and love of the outdoors with them.
My Bachelor’s degree in Architecture was earned at Rhode Island School of Design (Providence, RI) and was followed by a 4 year architectural apprenticeship in Connecticut. My professional work has always centered on guiding people to reach their dream of home ownership. My experience in residential design, consulting and teaching of CADD and enterprise wide sales systems and leading individuals in developing their dream homes in private communities has led me to bring my professional experience to a career in real estate. I am honored to help people find their dream home in the magnificent mountains and foothills of Western NC, that mean so much to me.
